Wizards' Trevor Booker Reportedly Signs With Israeli Team

Trevor Booker, who is under contract with the Washington Wizards for three more seasons, has signed a deal to play for Israel's Bnei HaSharon, according to a report from David Pick on Eurobasket.com.

Interestingly enough, Wizards GM Ernie Grunfeld's son Dan played for Bnei HaSharon last season. (He moved to Hapoel Holon, another Israeli team, for the 2011-12 season.) Bnei HaSharon finished fourth in the Israeli league last season, and will not participate in the continental cups this season.

Booker is the second player under NBA contract to sign in Israel, following New Jersey Nets point guard Jordan Farmarwho signed with Maccabi Tel Aviv this week. A total of eight players under NBA contract have signed overseas deals; in terms of NBA impact, Booker is middle of the pack.

The Wizards made the Clemson product the No. 23 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, and as a rookie played in 65 games, starting 14. He was, for the most part, an efficient bench scorer. In 12 games in March, he averaged 10 points and seven rebounds a game.
